Unions, Planed Parent Hood, Executive Power Grab

510.) Recently videos have been coming out showing workers at “planned parent hood” showing individuals posing as pimps how to get abortions for underaged girls.  Well the tapes have caused a huge uproar.  President Obama’s response to the issue is a great one, “I think sometimes these issues get manufactured, they get alot of attention in the blogosphere.” This is news to me, I did not know that that issue was manufactured. Does that mean that the tapes were facked? Why then hasn’t the main stream media been informed? Has President Obama actually done tests to see if the video was doctored or fake? He is making assumptions again, trying to down play a major issue that has come up. This orginization recieves a lot of its money from a donation from the tax payers. What I mean by that is that the government gives a lot of money to planed parent hood, and if they are doing criminal actions like this we need to seriously reconsider whether or not we should be funding this through tax payer dollars. President Obama is a pro-abortion man, and so are many of his supporters.  His base is wearing out so he cannot afford to irritate his loyal fallowers.  The President said “You know my bottom line is that I think that Planned Parent Hood in the past has done good work. If there was a specific problem at this center, it should be addressed, but we shouldn’t get so distracted with some of these issues.” Planned Parent Hood might have done good int he past, I am not going to argue that point, but that is not the issue here.  There have been tapes from more than one center released, so there is a chance that this is not just an isolated incident. President Obama is hoping that he can just sweep this under a rug and move on. This way he doesn’t have to face the idea of pulling federal funding from them.  These videos show a horrible crime being commited, and they are not to be taken lightly as the President seems to think. I guess child prostitution is ignorable, as long as it keeps the base happy.

511.) I know this will come as shocking news, but, President Obama has decided to put his nose into states buisness to support the Unions. As many of you most likely know there are huge protests taking place in Wisconsin. The Unions are in an uproar because the govenor who ran on ending collective bargining, is trying to end collective bargining.  The Democrat state senators have fled the state, afraid to have a vote.  So the Unions have been protesting in the street. President Obama cannot stand by and just let these union workers fight the fight alone. So he spoke up about the problem, sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong. “Some of what I’ve heard coming out of Wisconsin, where you’re just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally seems like more of an assault on unions. And I think it’s very important for us to understand that public employees, they’re our neighbors, they’re our friends. These are folks who are teachers and they’re firefighters and they’re social workers and they’re police officers. They make a lot of sacrifices and make a big contribution. And I think it’s important not to vilify them or to suggest that somehow all these budget problems are due to public employees” No one is vilifying the workers more then themselves. They are holding up signs that say things like “f_ck Scott Walker”, the teachers who are protesting went on strike shuting down the schools. They put the children of Wisconsin’s education on the line to protest, very heroric.  Some of them even have fake doctors excuses to get off of work.  It is not the goal of the govenor to turn the Unions into villians they are doing that themselves.  The govenor is only asking the Unions to give some very reasonable concessions. These people are rioting in the streets “fearing” for their homes and way of life when all the Govenor is asking is that State Union workers pay contribute 5.8% to their pensions, and 12.8% to their health care plan.  Yet President Obama jumps to the aid of the teachers who refuse to teach, the union members who refuse to do go do their jobs. 

512.)President Obama has decided that he will no longer enforce law banning same sex marriages because he thinks it is unconstitutional. That is a clear over reach of Presidential power. He does not have the authority to choose what laws he does or does not enforce, he does not have the power to deem an existing law unconstitutional.  The only time the President has that power is when the congress passes legislation, he then can veto that legislation.  If he doesn’t veto it, it then becomes law and he is charged with enforcing that law.  If a President can just decide “nope that is no longer a law” at whim, the concept of democracy cannot work.  We become a nation of men instead of a nation of law. Subject to the changing fancies of who ever may occupy the office.  The only branch that can deem a law unconstitutional is the judicial branch.  This is not about the issue of gay rights, this is an issue of the President assuming more executive power, something that he blasted his predecessor for.  There is a right and a wrong way to do things. The right way, the legal way, would be for President Obama to enter new legislation into the congress, who then votes on it, he can then sign it, and there for do away with the law that he doesn’t want to enforce.  President Obama decided that method takes far too long, in his version of the United States you only have to use congress when it is convenient to you, the government only has to fallow the law when it helps you, so sense there is no way he could get the change in the law through the peoples house, he decided he would break the law and just do whatever he wanted to.  What he did was illegal, and sets yet another scary president.  Where are the people who hated President Bush assuming more executive power? Oh that’s right they were cry baby progressives who only hate large federal governments when a Republican is in charge. When their socialist savior is in office, it is something to be praised.  The ends do not justify the means. 

513.) President Obama said today that he is not worried about the situation in Libya’s effect on oil prices, he thinks we will be able to ride out the economic effects.   Really? Or could is the reason that he is not worried because he does not actually care if gas prices sky rocket.  He has said in the past that he doesn’t mind four dollar a gallon gas. He said his cap and trade system would cause energy prices to necessarly sky rocket.  So what does he care if Libya causes prices to spike, he can blame his agendas negative effects on the economy on the events in the middle east, and probably somehow on George W. Bush.

  1. The last “scandal” like this one was the acorn “pimp” videos which were an identical scam to this one, and were complete bullshit, but still were reported on as legit by the news media even though they could be debunked in about an hour online.When you tell someone you’re a drug dealer or a pimp or something, 99% of the time the person is just going to keep their nose down until you leave, then maybe call the cops.  In the acorn videos they answered their questions, were polite, then called the police when they left and reported them.  But whatever, this “sting” operation stuff is bullshit.  It’s like calling up AT&T and asking the operator about getting a phone plan for your crack house, then when he gives you the info and says they will provide their service to you, release the tape and get that operator fired for drug trafficking.The fact of the matter is it doesn’t matter what the people at planned parenthood do, if they told them to get the hell out of the office or they’ll call the police they would just run the scam on another branch until they found some tape they could use.  Their goal is to smear the organization and generate scandal, not make the world a better place.  Which is why they took the acorn vids where the woman was trying to “save” the fake prostitute and talk her out of hooking for a living, edited the tapes to misrepresent them and got the woman fired.

  2. Oh, and the “pimp” in the acorn videos actually dressed in business attire and said he worked in a bank.

  3. @obamawatch – Look up the transcripts on o’keefe’s own website.  Here’s a tidbit from the first interview:”Hannah (Eden): He’s got all these 13, 14, 15 year old girls from Al Salvador and what’s what- I need to protect them like I know what it’s like and I have to protect them and give them someplace to live.”In the actual context they were claiming they needed acorn to help them get a home loan so they could rescue teens being pimped out by her violent former pimp and get them off the street, protect them etc.  They edited the videos and presented them as acorn helping them set up a child prostitution ring.  Including changing the audio so that they were responding to things they never said in the interview.  Criminal investigations cleared acorn and it’s employees of all wrongdoing.On the other hand what o’keefe and his friends did was a felony.  It is against the law in most states to record someone else’s conversations without their consent, and if he had not fled the jurisdiction he would be in prison for wiretapping charges. And he should be in prison for attempting to wiretap a US congresswoman’s office, but the charges were reduced.  These men are con artists.  He has since tried to “sting” the census bureau, and invite a CNN reporter to a “boat filled with sexual props” with a hidden camera to embarass CNN.Classy guys, no?

  4. @agnophilo – i will have to look into that. it is this sort of things that makes people doubt the world.  A similar situation would be

     seeing as this was wrong, I will have to look up and do some research on my own.

  5. @obamawatch – That is completely sleazy and vile, and if I recall it was denounced by liberals as well, even raked over the coals on the daily show.  Bear in mind also the guy who is pointing it out (sean hannity) stood by o’keefe and friends even after it was discovered that they had perpetrated a fraud and is just as bad as the people he is attacking and in precisely the same way, he just plays for the opposite team. 

  6. @agnophilo – Do you have links for any of this?  Because I have not seen any proof that the videos were edited or doctored to say anything other than what was shown.  And I have followed this story closely since it first came out.  I’ve heard claims that they were edited but no one has presented proof of those claims.

  7. @firetyger – The prick apparently took the transcripts down from his site, and all of the original links on redstate and biggovernment are broken.  I googled that quote and found two instances of that transcript online, and both are bullshit and contain things I never read in the original.

  8. I should have saved the files at the time.

  9. @agnophilo – unfortunatly when I searched the web i was unable to find anything supporting your claim, but once you find something send it my way.

  10. @obamawatch – The transcripts were deleted from the net.  There is unfortunately no other way to establish that the videos were edited.  There are various news stories about the various attourney generals’ investigations clearing acorn of wrongdoing and saying that the videos were “heavily edited”, such as this.
